Leasehold Extension - Getting Started
An outline of the right to extend the lease of a flat under the Leasehold Reform Housing and Urban Development Act 1993.
As leaseholder you have the right to add 90 years to what is left on your existing lease.
For example, if you have 75 years left on your lease you will be given a new lease of 165 years.
Alternatively you may be able to extend your lease to any number of years by negotiating informally with your landlord.
Lease extension can be a difficult process. We recommend you get professional help from a solicitor and surveyor with experience in this area.
